Brittle vs. non-brittle pastures
One of the most fascinating
points in Small-Scale
was the distinction between brittle and nonbrittle environments.
The term was coined by Allan Savory to explain why rainforests (the
extreme of non-brittle environments) respond differently to grazing
than deserts (the extreme of brittle environments). Most
locations are partway between the two extremes, and understanding where
your farm lies on the scale can help you make management decisions.
